I have been reading, passionately for more than 25 years now. I have also read more than 2,000 books.
I guess it explains this endeavor.
Reading has given me a lot of beautiful emotions. I will be talking a little more about this in the upcoming posts. I will also share plenty of my book reviews. Stay tuned!
You will also, soon enough, find an array of links and recommendations for books to read.

It would be good to introduce myself too! How I missed that! My name is Joanna. I am Lebanese and I live in Dubai. I am tri-lingual as most Lebanese people are (French, Arabic, and English). I am fairly fluent in Spanish as well. I practice yoga as much as I can. I have been working in all things HR: operations, consulting, and project management.
There are a few other things that you will discover as you read my posts.
